Understand what a diagnosis of Huntington’s Disease can mean: life expectancy & more.

Huntington’s disease is a rare but debilitating genetic condition. Around middle-age, the nerve cells in your mind will begin to break down, leading to a gradual loss in cognitive function. If your parent has it, you may develop it in the future. There is no cure for it, and no way to prevent it if you have the gene that causes it. You’ll find articles detailing more about Huntington’s disease. In addition, you’ll learn how to cope if you have been diagnosed with it, as well as how to take care of a relative who has it. Huntington’s disease is terrifying, but by knowing what it is, you can slow down its effects.
